DESIGNING THE FIFA TROPHY CUP
given at the BEST AWARDS on 9th January 2017. in Zurich, Swiss

This trophy cup is the outcome of an exciting and pleasurable collaboration between Mr Zvonimir Boban and I.
Mr Boban initially reached out to me with his idea of designing a new iconic trophy
cup and it was with his help and input that I eventually designed it.
In the course of designing, it was our shared belief was that it should not deviate from
the classic conventions. Hence the shape and the spirit of this design follows
the familiar and well-known visual identity of the FIFA.
It respects and honours those same values that were the cornerstone of this sport, its
greatest athletes and their accomplishments, since the earliest days of FIFA in an attempt
to celebrate and rejoice in these values in today's world.
The guiding idea was to combine the tradition and history of football, and the great players
who have received it in the past, by the shape of the ball (since year 1930 from the first
World Cup in Uruguay) with our new aesthetic approach and possibilities brought about by
latest technological developments.
It also strives to embody the spirit of our times by placing its visual and symbolic core
within the post modern framework by invoking diverse references and historic layers from
the history of both art and football.
By sharing these values we opted for platinum colour, simplicity and minimalism in shape
and details as the most articulate and powerful expression of FIFA's core mission.

 
 
Patrik Ervells latest collection is ironically titled “Software”ADIDAS ORIGINALS TUBULAR SHADOW. In the notes from the presentation, Ervell says he was interested in developing tension between nostalgia and sci-fi,NIKE ZOOM WINFLO 3 and even included 90s cyberpunk amongst his influences. Ervell developed this point of view by creating an imaginary software company called Idegen software systems. He then re-appropriated the company’AIR JORDAN XXXI MENs logo in several of the collection’s garments. Elsewhere,MBT TARIKI MEN mohair coats with oversized lapels made an appearance alongside mock neck tees,NIKE AIR JORDAN RETRO 5 police-inspired ribbed sweaters,MBT FORA GTX WOMEN flight bombers, and polyurethane leather coats. The setting was also suitably dystopian, and the resulting ambiance was something akin to if the creators of Deutschland 83 and Hackers met up and decided to create a collection… We mean that as a compliment.Yesterday afternoon,JORDAN CP3 IX MEN artist JR spent the day working on his latest collaborative piece with Daniel Arsham in Greenpoint,NIKE AIR MAX 90 Brooklyn,MBT KIMONDO GTX MEN NYC. Connecting the lines between art, architecture, dance and theater, Daniel Arsham has been known to subvert existing architectural structures in unconventional,NIKE CLASSIC CORTEZ NYLON playful ways; confusing and confounding the expectations of space and form.
